I have one section of my score that is 16 bars, repeated 3 times. The only thing I want to change is the dynamics:
1x -- p
2x -- mf
3x -- ff
I have tried these two options:
- Placing my dynamic intent in a Performance Text field above the 1st measure of the repeated section.
- Indicating p on the pick-up note to the repeated section with mf on the pick-up to the 2nd repeat and ff on the pick-up to the 3rd repeat.
- Unrolling the 16-bar repeat into a 48-bar section.
I am not a professional musician, just a dabbler, but visually, I think I make my intentions clear to a live performer with either option 1 or 2 (though I am not sure which would be more "technically correct"). However, neither option will make the computer play the score they way I want it to sound. The only way I have found to do what I want to do is option 3.
There has to be a more elegant way to write this other than option 3.
